administration with president obama, our country is at a crossroads. we need i think our leaders to hold people accountable and to stick up for working families. the poor and the elderly. they have given enough. we can get more revenue. we just have to have the guts to do it. we don't need our leaders to stand in front of big donors and not have the guts to make the decisions of what's right for america. the folks that have to pay more are the bush era tax cuts. those recipients in my opinion. we can get more out of them. and of course it's all about the loopholes, isn't it? well, how are we going to change tax policy? washington if we can't get anything passed in the senate? the entire lynchpin to the 113th is going to be what is harry reid does with changing the rules for the filibuster. then we can move to get to these tax loopholes that has helped the wealthiest americans in this country. it's all about ideology. what do you believe in? do you believe the lower 80% of americans should actually serve up a little bit more to make this thing right? because we never paid for the war

hope so. we need to close the gun show loophole. there are certain things the obama administration could do on the mental health front and on enforcing existing laws when it comes to tracking guns through the computer system that was set up. we have to come together. i think it is one of those enough is enough moments. it's one of those pivotal moments. i believe it is happening. but i do want to say to the viewers, it's really up to you, because it's going to take courage for certain colleagues to step up to the plate. and we have to make sure people know that if they do the right thing, it will be noticed, and it will be rewarded by support. >> senator boxer, thank you for your leadership on this. i appreciate your time. >> thanks. >> on "the ed show." thank you so much. share your thoughts with us on twitter and facebook. we always want to know what you think. >>> coming up, gun clubs claim they're training hundreds of teachers to carry guns in schools. but are they telling the truth? we've got the facts about firearms and safety of students, next. she knows you like no one else

. his name president barack obama, who has repeatedly made offers to republicans on cuts to social security. the recent fiscal cliff negotiations, president obama gave house speaker john boehner a third proposal, increasing the tax rate threshold to $400,000 and adding chained cpi, which is a benefit reduction in social security. that's the only way you can look at it. republicans did not take the plan. when harry reid was negotiating with senate republican leader mitch mcconnell, the president allegedly asked reid to put social security reforms back on the table, according to multiple accounts, senator reid was so unhappy with the proposal, he threw it into a burning fireplace in his office. the white house says a formal offer on social security was never made. but president obama's position on social security reform really isn't hard to find. in his 2006 book, "the audacity of hope," president obama wrote the problems with the social security trust fund are real but manageable. in 1983, when facing a similar problem, ronald reagan and house speaker tip o'neill got together and sh
